I really like your music and played it in the car last weekend while driving through Germany. Thanks! Really glad you like it! 🙂 My Italian is nearly non-existant (actually I piece it out from my French and Spanish) but the headline appears to say something along the lines of “Arriving Jones a composer in love with the blues”. With the story going on to say that you are a composer, singer, and something. Appearing Saturday and Monday at the given locations and times. And saying that in forty years of singing(?) you’ve appeared in national and international blues festivals. Hope I didn’t butcher that too badly. Any samples of your music on the Web? Sorry for the delay in replying: only just got back form Verona on Tuesday . . .still catching up . . . . . . . have a look at this post, if you want free music! https://rowlandjones.wordpress.com/2011/03/19/free-music-51-by-rowland-jones/ There’s also a clip of me singing and playing with Lorenz here: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=190285337681973&oid=110795358966106&comments Cheers, Rowland It is good to be recognised in Italian 🙂 They’re a smart people. And the lovely thing is that they are so lyrical too! A drummer, who has worked with many big names in Italy, said: ‘You have taste’ Another musician, a singer, said: ‘You are a prince of the Blues . . as if from a noble family of the Blues’ How can you not feel flattered?! You’re a man for all seasons RJ. Thanks, CT! What a renaissance man! Wish I could hop over and listen. Hi P! It was a great weekend – three concerts, met lots of old musician friends and many from previous years! Played my socks off for two hours each night and returned yesterday exhausted but happy! One exhausted Gentleman of Verona – What more could you want?! One Gentleman Of Verona? Leave a Reply to pegoleg Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
